we talked to carlee and jillian and carlos matthew soto. their sister vicki soto was killed in the mass shooting in december while trying to protect the first graders in her class. when i asked vicki soto's three siblings last night what one thing they would like to see done in our country after sandy hook, what one thing they would like to see congress do to try to prevent something like this from happening again, they all had the same suggestion. if you could at least be the most persuasive you could possibly be to members of congress so they would change something, would what would you have them change? >> i would probably be the assault weapon ban, just because no one needs those guns. this is no reason to have them unless you're military. >> what do you guys think about that? >> same. >> i agree. >> the assault weapons ban is considered to be the least likely to pass of all the gun reforms currently being considered in washington. all of the certainty against such a ban exists, despite the fact that it's been done before in the '90s when they also said it couldn't be do

? >> i'm honored to have with me tonight, that is a brother of one of the teachers vickie soto. her brother carlos is with me tonight. vickie and carlos' family is from stamford, connecticut which i represent. vickie is a true hero. she hid--she hid some of her students in the closet, and then she stood in front of the others to protect them. then she was murdered as one of the six teachers in the sandy hook elementary school. carlos is at the stratford high school. he is a satisfy sophomore. he is a wonderful young man. he placed a call to me unbeknownst to his parents that he wanted to come in and speak with me. is not about numbers. this is about every parent, relative. every person asked me when we sat down, what are we going to do? that's the right question as a congress, what are we going to do to stand up for those families. those at newtown. those at oak creek aurora, and families around the country who have lost loved ones. >> michael: i want to ask you congressman delau ro about that. the question he asked you is what do you want to do? it's clear what you want to do. and
touched. and then when dawn hochsprung and mary sherlach, vicki soto, lauren rousseau, rachel davino, anne marie murphy showed up for work at sandy hook on december 14th of last year, they expected a day like any other, doing what was right for their kids, spent a chilly morning welcoming young students, they had no idea that evil was about to strike. and when it did, they could have taken shelter by themselves. they could have focus canned on their own safety, on their own well-being, but they didn't. they gave their lives to protect the precious children in their care. they gave all they had for the most innocent and helpless among us. and that's what we honor today. the courageous heart, the selfless spirit, the inspiring actions of extraordinary americans, extraordinary citizens. we are a nation of 315 million people. out of all of these folks, around 6,000 were nominated for this medal and today, you're the ones receiving it. not just for what you do but for what you represent for the shining example that you set every single day and the inspiration that you give each of us as fellow
of vicki soto, a teacher who was killed at the school that day. two sandy hook teachers were in the audience including one who survived gunshot wounds to her foot and leg and hand. she was invited by the congresswoman from newtown, elizabeth este. several of these folks also spoke at i apress conference on gun violence that took place before the state of the union, highlighting the fact that they would be there watching in person. first lady michelle obama had gun violence victims seated with her for the speech. she invited cleopatra and nathaniel pendleton. their 15-year-old daughter hadiya pendleton was killed last month in chicago just about a mile from the president and first lady's chicago home. the first lady also invited police lieutenant brian murphy, who was the first on the scene police officer at the oak creek, wisconsin sikh temple mass shooting in august. lieutenant murphy took 15 bullets to the head, neck, and body when he confronted that well-armed shooter that day. he survived. also seated with the first lady was another sandy hook teacher, kaitlin roig. the f
america, but cultures. the story of gun legislation. and the family of vickie soto, if you remember that name, you've heard it before. she was the teacher that shielded all of her kids in that classroom in sandy hook. her family was on msnbc and they were asked about the connecticut effect, which a lot of lawmakers say this will go away when they stop thinking about connecticut. they were particularly upset by that because they want this to not only be about their sister dying by guns, but they want it to be a story that transcends even more so than what happened in connecticut because they say it will continue to happen. it happened in colorado, it will happen in connecticut, it's going to happen again. >> america sometimes has a short term memory. we get wrapped up in other stuff. we mourn and grieve and then life moves on and things fade in the memory unless you're directly impacted. maybe they're worried about that. it would seem the assault weapons ban does not have much of a chance of passing. but that debate gets under way later today. >>> moving on to this, a stunning story
